Zeman Appoints Culture Minister, Ends Government Crisis

Miloš Zeman

President Milos Zeman has appointed Lubomir Zaoralek Culture Minister bringing an end to the three month long crisis.


Mr. Zaoralek said his priority will be filling the leadership positions at the National Gallery in Prague and the Olomouc Museum of Art. The firing of the heads of these institutions led to his predecessor Antonin Stanek resigning and the protracted dispute between the president and Social Democrats over his replacement.
